Christmas Quiz part 2

I’ve had a further thought about 5… Is it part of the Raglan collection which is (or was, it’s not clear from the web whether the proposed sale has gone through) at Cefntilla Court, near Usk in Monmouthshire. Failing that try Tredegar House, Imperial War museum….

17 rather than DNA, I’m wondering if another suggestion could be Kit Calverts rescue of the Wensleydale cheese factory in Hawes…


1. Batemans
2. Beddgelert
3. Cloud’s Hill
4. Idrigall Point, Isle of Skye
5. I’m assuming you don’t mean Balaclava (as it doesn’t fit in with therest) so all I can come up here is The National Archives…
6. Range of hills in Southern Uplands of Scotland
7. Galilee Chapel, Durham Cathedral
8. Alnwick station building
9. Helvellyn
10. Chester Race Course
11. Weymouth
12. Carnforth
13. York Railway Museum
14. Edinburgh Castle
15. Northampton Museum
16. Dorchester
17. I haven’t a clue about this one, but being a biologist will go for the discovery of the double helix in Cambridge…
18. Trompe l’oeil violin at Chatsworth
19. Birmingham
20. Salisbury


Here’s the next part of the quiz from Roger Bray and the British Guild of Travel Writers…
